Solar for Municipalities & Government

Solar can greatly benefit municipalities & government, providing an affordable solution to rising monthly electricity costs. SCF offers financing by means of a Power Purchase Agreement, resulting in $0 out-of-pocket capital expenditures for municipal clients.

With net metering, utility power bills will decrease with solar electricity production; excess production during sunny months will be credited, effectively lowering costs during cloudier periods.

Solar is an attractive cost-cutting option, especially in the eyes of voters and community members. Taking action to implement green options, like solar is often a focus for many constituents, making implementation of solar a smart and effective way to save money, act sustainably & maintain social responsibility.

SCF utilizes the Solar Access to Public Capital (SAPC) Commercial PPA for all of its projects, which is an industry standard PPA. This reduces project transaction costs, permitting SCF to offer better terms to energy consumers.

Project Highlight:Solar for Municipalities & Governments

City of San Joaquin: Located in California’s Central Valley, San Joaquin is committing fully to renewable energy. Their fourth installation, located on the newly acquired Cherry Lane property houses a 113 kW solar array utilizing SunPower 435W PV modules and attached to racking engineered by RBI. The system, installed by Vista Solar is slated to offset more than 180 MWh of electricity annually and lock in their power rates for the next 25 years.

This system is coupled with the smaller, 16kW roof mounted array at the Community Center. These are the fourth and fifth installations SCF has completed in partnership with the City of San Joaquin, totaling over 300kW. The portfolio will secure San Joaquin’s energy supply while also providing energy savings immediately.
